He’s alive! And this year more than ever! 2016 is the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, but his legacy, works and words are alive and more relevant than ever. However, this year is not only a great year for Shakespeare, but it is also the 25th anniversary of Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand (SGCNZ).
So come and celebrate with us the beauty of the Bard’s works as SGCNZ is organizing its yearly SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival (UOSWSF). In the 23 Regional Festivals schools from all over New Zealand get the chance to perform 5 and 15 minute scenes from Shakespeare plays. The best scenes will then be performed at the SGCNZ National UOSWSF in Wellington on Queen’s birthday weekend.
The creativity and enthusiasm of young talented students performing the glorious words of William Shakespeare is highly contagious and will leave you with a newly sparked love and passion for the Bard. And if you are well-acquainted with Shakespeare, let these fresh interpretations give a few new insights into these words you know so well. Shakespeare is truly for everyone and that is what the SGCNZ UOSWSF has proven over the past 25 years.
